Show Off Your Stripes

From skinny white pinstripes to big fat bands of color, stripes are currently enjoying something of a revival in the wedding world, and while they’re definitely not a new trend, we love them all the same!  If you’re looking to include a stripe or two in your wedding day, here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate them.

Classic black and white stripes add a touch of whimsy to an otherwise plain envelope liner while ombre stripes kill two trends with one stone.

Stripes may be nothing new, but striped bridal gowns sure are. Oscar de la Renta came out with this bold black and white number last season and we think it’s a real show stopper.

If you’re looking for a subtler option, this white on white striped number from Hayley Paige does the trick. Or you could add a striped blazer or cover up to your ensemble instead.

Unlike the ladies, gents are no strangers to rocking stripes–usually of the pinstripe variety–on their wedding day. And these days, as grooms get bolder in their attire choices, subsequently, so do the stripes.

Don’t you love how this striped aisle runner adds a little modern edge to a classically beautiful venue?

We think everything, from your tent to your linens, and all the little details in between, can benefit from the stripe treatment. Just make sure to pair them with solid colored elements so as not overwhelm the eye.

And last, but not least, we love a fabulous striped wedding cake, don’t you?
